Close, Lois. 24 starts, 21 finished. (I oughtta know--I pulled 'em!)
Actually, a good ride. Only 3 pulls, one at the finish, and all 3 were
lameness, but not *severe*--just too lame to continue.
And thanks again to Dr. Susan Montgomery, who leapt into the breach
to be out 2nd DVM at the last minute!
